Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway: The Husband Hoax by Saxon James

THE HUSBAND HOAXAccidental Love #1 by Saxon James



Being invited to my cousin’s wedding really shouldn’t be such a big deal except, oh yeah, I haven’t seen my family for a decade.

My parents turned their backs on me and I’ve done everything since to become successful and show them what they lost. Only, it’s kinda hard to be a success when you’re a walking trainwreck.

So I’m going to fake it. Hire a guy with an online presence so impressive they’ll be desperate to welcome me back into the elitist fold, and roll into the wedding with the kind of confidence I’ve never felt a day in my life.

The plan’s a knockout.

Until my fake date cancels minutes before the ceremony.


One letter from my dearly departed grandfather, and suddenly I’m on a husband hunt.

He’s reworked his entire will so I’m set to inherit far more than I’m entitled to, and all because he’s asked me to use that money for “good”.

In order to get that inheritance, though, there’s one stipulation: marriage.

Even with his request, I’m tempted to stick to my original plan of getting as far from my wretched family as possible, and letting them fight it out.

But then I run into a tall drink of scattered mess outside of a wedding who’s in desperate need of a date, and the pieces click into place.

I help him, he helps me.

Marriage, money, then go our separate ways.


Now all I have to do is stop myself from actually falling for the guy.

I absolutely enjoyed The Husband Hoax so much, I read ’til god knows what time because I didn’t want to put it down.

Emile and Christian were both characters I instantly fell in love with and I loved the way from the first meeting they just seemed to click.

They both have pretty horrible families, with only one or two family members who are worth keeping around. Emile’s family, especially his grandmother, are the worst kind of snobs and the way they behaved towards Christian was unforgivable.

I loved how they are both all in helping and supporting each other even when things are supposed to be ‘fake’, and that they fall in love without even realising it right from the start. There is plenty of humour and heart in this story, with a few misunderstandings or lack of communication thrown in, but it is low angst and has a wonderful HEA.

Christian’s ‘found family’, his five roommates and Aunt Agatha their neighbour, were the best kind of family and Emile’s sister Elle was great too. I’m looking forward to seeing who amongst them gets their Accidental Love story next.
